Corus360 and CAPS’ joint efforts will enhance their ability to meet clients disaster recovery, business continuity and co-location needs. The partnership’s collective roster of products, services and deep professional experience will be available in the northeast and southeast regions.
CAPS’ fifty-six thousand square foot Duluth, Georgia data center will be the main base of operations.
As a result of the partnership, with a single call, clients will be able to create customized modular solutions to achieve maximum results. IT infrastructure, data center technologies and management, co-location for real time operations, workstation facilities and managed services are among the list of solutions available under a single umbrella.
Additionally, the partnership will provide disk-to-disk data management and security for all levels, including mid range and mainframe operations, enterprise software applications and DR/BC planning, implementation and support. All products, services and facilities will be regulatory compliant.
CAPS will expand its sales force and its ability to reach clients in the metro Atlanta area and the surrounding states who are in need of co-location and support services. Its relationship with Corus360 will also improve its growth potential in the southeast, and add another key component to its channel structure.
Corus360 will augment its existing IT services by gaining access to CAPS best of breed infrastructure environment and facilities, in addition to a strategic data center-based capability for its RES-Q program. The RES-Q Disaster Recovery services complement CAPS well respected abilities in the recovery and business continuity space. In its Q1 2008 Wave Report Forrester Research named CAPS a “strong performer” in the Fixed-Site Disaster Recovery Service Providers category. According to the report, “CAPS can offer high-performance solutions in its region and boasts very high customer satisfaction levels.”
The RES-Q Center-based Services program provides clients with a hot-site/cold-site location to test or restore critical systems and applications. In addition, RES-Q Managed Recovery addresses critical hardware and application recovery with three separate solutions backed by IT consulting capabilities offered by both partners.
Clients in the market for effective business recovery services will find that the Corus360-CAPS partnership led by the RES-Q program meets product diversity, rapid recovery timeframes, pricing and service level requirements of today’s SMB and enterprise clients.
The Technology Association of Georgia (TAG), the state’s leading technology organization, selected Corus360 as one of the Top 40 Innovative Technology companies in Georgia for its award-winning application, Remote360 for BlackBerry.
CAPS has secure facilities in Shelton, Connecticut, which serve the northeast’s Boston-New York business corridor; and its 56,000 square-foot facility in Duluth, Georgia serves the southeast region.
In early July, the companies collaborated with the AFCOM Atlanta Chapter on an event detailing the reasons why the time is right to consider a strategic green approach to extend aging data centers’ lifecycle for organizations facing difficulties surviving this tough economy.
“Our product mix and support capabilities create a strong value-proposition for clients,” said Peter Messina, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of CAPS. “While we will launch our sales-marketing efforts out of the Atlanta region, we will also target clients within the northeast region.”
“The reality of a disaster striking our systems and infrastructure is much greater than perceived by many. Whether it is on a micro-scale, such as a building system failure or fire or on a macro-scale, including man-made or natural disasters, the need for a current, tested disaster recovery plan and solution is integral to the survival of a business. Corus360 and CAPS offer solutions that meet the multitude of needs different businesses may have at a price point that is very appealing in this economy,” said Tom Lowry, Chief Operating Officer of Corus360.
